[AusNOG] Bogon Filtering

IMHO It's generally considered in most cases today that the caveats outweigh the benefits.  I would be interested to hear from anyone on the list who is still seeing a level of traffic being blocked by bogon filters that justifies their use.

In contrast I can say that the misuse of Bogon Filtering by others continues to cause numerous headaches for people using recently allocated ranges.

Hi guys

Fairly open ended question but does filter these anymore. Some companies seem to think that as the IPV4 space has been fully allocated this is no longer a requirement. However looking at the bogon lists there are still a huge number of unallocted IPV4 address.

What do you guys think.
